No army marched across this peaceful field; no ancient warriors'
      lungs were stained the color of these wild mustard plants.

What is your substance, whereof are you made,
That millions of strange shadows on you tend?

If you don't know Venus is often referred to as Earth's evil twin,
    but conditions on the planet were not always so hellish,
         according to
their essence, you can still taste
                           the bitterness of their soul.
